The depth and scope of Accountnet’s corporate practice stem from the diverse experience of our consulting team; among them, team members have more than 50 years in technical consulting, CFO-level expertise, accounting experience, and technical service. We are a consulting firm that also sells software to corporations, hedge funds, broker-dealers, private equity firms, and family offices. Companies have also relied on our advice to compete effectively in a global business environment. Our mission is to provide A-level service to everyone in the organization, from the accounts payable team to the CFO and management. We target organizations and create clear road maps during the implementation process. This process is built on more than trust; it includes accounting and technical considerations and adopting a big-picture view of the customer as a whole. We emphasize customer training to allow customers to be in the driver’s seat and to foster self-sufficiency with their system. We also find new technological changes and Web-based solutions that can enhance end users’ lives, whether they work from home or at the office.
Anne-Claire McAllister, President
Anne-Claire McAllister, Microsoft Certified professional, founded Accountnet, Inc., in November 1996 with John C. Peace. Anne-Claire has been involved with the Accounting software and Dynamics since 1987 and has maintained Gold Level reseller status and Systems Integrator consultant status since the inception of these designations in 1990. Anne-Claire has a Bachelor of Science in computer science from Bucknell University and a Master of Science from New York University. She is the treasurer of the New York City chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners. Anne-Claire heads the consulting area of the practice and determines the business and technical requirements during the presales process, and then smoothly transitions this data with her team so the project can get off to a running start. This process ensures not only quality implementation but also success for all involved. The consulting philosophy and implementation methodology is termed “Go Forward” and has various levels of preparation and documentation for quality-led professional services. Go Forward is part of the Microsoft Sure Step certification, and it has also led Accountnet’s team members to successful implementations and integrations — ultimately enabling end users to get more out of the system and go live faster.
